The University of Victoria's aboriginal liaison, Greg Sam, took time to talk about not only his people's faith, but the effect other faiths have wreaked upon his people.First Nations people were the victim of cultural genocide when European settlers first landed on North America.Sam said the healing process when one faith victimizes another is a complicated one.
"It created conflict, it created confusion and it forced a change in attitude of our belief, which is still very strong," Sam said."However, when you're talking about Christianity and the whole indoctrination of going into the schools and preaching their religion - of course it was bad.I think we still maintain a strong power in our beliefs but, I hate to say this, we're not traditionally intact."
A member of the Coast Salish First Nation, Sam said alongside the passing down of the Christian faith, customs and practices, the hurt caused by certain Christians trying to overthrow aboriginal beliefs has also been passed down.
"Those people who went to those schools, it has streamlined down to their families and their grandchildren," Sam said."Without realizing the effect of the abuse that was received in regards to mental, physical.So yes it did, it had a real big impact."
But when Sunday rolls around, preaching and arguing about the pain caused to his faith is the last thing Sam said he's going to do.Part of his faith teaches moving on from tragedy.When he takes the stage as one of the conference's keynote speakers, song, dance and prayer will be on his agenda.
"A lot of people have mended and healed with the support of the community," Sam said.

Greg Sam is Royal Roads University's Aboriginal Coordinator. He is a Coast Salish Speaker who is dedicated to education about Aboriginal culture, his peoples' lifestyle, and their way of teaching. He was born into the Tsartlip First Nations and was given the hereditary name of Lux-Lax-A-Luc. He was brought up immersed in the traditional culture and values of the Tsartlip people.
Greg is an elder with the Tsartlip First Nation, is a speaker, storyteller and ceremonial master, a man-about-town with an infectious smile bridging the gap between Native society and the wider world.
In 1979, he attended a training session at the Nechi Institute in Alberta where he says he "became in touch with all the teachings, all the contemporary life approaches to dealing with issues and challenges. It was then that he decided he wanted to help others by sharing with them the teachings and traditions of his Native culture.
Over the past several years he has coordinated and facilitated several workshops, including "Life Skills", a workshop for youth, and "Skwata- The Raven Speaks" workshop, which he co-hosted with his late father, Dr. Samuel Sam, O.C., in partnership with the University of Victoria Law School.
Since 1994 Greg has been assisting the Aboriginal Liaison office of the University of Victoria in setting a traditional tone for graduation and protocol receptions. He also worked with the Victoria Police Department's Native Liaison Program. In Aboriginal communities Greg facilitates self-governance, leadership and communications workshops.
Greg sits on the Royal Roads University Research Ethics Board. He works with the Canadian National Elders Council, which provides assistance to the Indigenous Bar Association.
Greg has been described by those who know him as man with compassion, humour, spirit and a sense of pride in what it is to be Native.
